Broke his duck over hurdles at the sixth attempt (second run for this yard) when an easy odds-on winner of a Uttoxeter maiden (2m4f, soft) a fortnight ago; faces a stiffer test under a penalty.
Driven out to floor the much more fancied Nobby and Imperial Alcazar in a 2m Listed bumper at Newbury (good to soft) in March; out of his depth in a Grade 1 NHF race at Punchestown subsequently; steps up in trip for hurdles debut.
Winning Irish pointer (Aghabullogue); 40-1 when a remote second to The Butcher Said on hurdles debut in a 2m4½f Huntingdon maiden (good); an unlikely candidate.
Shirocco gelding (well-related); weakened close home when no match for the 8L winner Montego Grey in a Market Rasen bumper (2m½f, good) in April; switches to hurdling at a reasonably realistic level.
Milan gelding, winner of 3m maiden point-to-point at Fairyhouse (good to yielding) in April; has joined Chris Gordon for £24,000 since; hurdles debut.
